SMC Foundation Logo

Teaching at Santa Monica College (SMC) since 2002, we have grown the Art History program into a major part of overall campus life – sponsoring numerous lectures, symposiums, workshops and other cultural activities.

Your tax-deductible donation will go directly into helping create an Art History program endowment to provide an ongoing funding source to continue our department’s important work – and continue to have a significant impact on our students, the faculty that serve them and the larger community.

Just recently, SMC Art History partnered with several internal divisions and external organizations, including LACMA and the Art Historians of Southern California, to bring Dr. Larry Shiner from the University of Illinois to speak and interact with our faculty, students and the larger community. Help us continue to offer this type of programming through a tax-deductible donation to help endow this fund.

“Attending the Art Historians of Southern California’s annual conference at LACMA was an invaluable experience. Having studied Art History at SMC, as an alumna I was provided the unique opportunity to network with professionals in the field.”–Lolly Burrows, SMC Alumna

Here are just some of the events that could not have happened without support from donors like you.

The mission of the Art History Division in the Art Department is to profoundly impact students in understanding visual culture and language (past and present) and in appreciating and participating in the visual arts throughout their lives.  We strive for the highest excellence in education; imbuing our students with essential critical thinking and writing skills within collaborative and inter-disciplinary learning environments that will empower them to achieve their dreams.
